Smile! It can't be that bad!

Posted by beardedlady on February 17, 2003, at 14:45:51

I have heard that one all my life--at everywhere from school to the grocery store. I am usually not in a bad mood when I am out and about and am very friendly and talkative with strangers, but I don't smile a lot when I'm just standing in line alone with my cart.

Once, when I was asked this a year ago, I responded, "Excuse me, but how do you know my mother didn't just die?"

The person apologized profusely, and I said, "My mother didn't die, but my decision to smile or not is none of your business!"

I wish I could find a witty retort for that one that wouldn't hurt anyone's feelings, but the nerve of people to tell you what can't be bad!
